Virgin America launches new Hawaii flights

Virgin America said it has launched new daily nonstop flights from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Honolulu International Airport (HNL) with a series of festive events in San Francisco and Honolulu, including the opportunity for workaholics to score the ultimate “Hawaiiscape” with Virgin Group Founder Richard Branson.

To help celebrate its new Hawai´iflights, Virgin America teamed up with the world´s leading community-driven hospitality company, Airbnb, to encourage travelers to “Work Hard, Hawai´i Hard” by experiencing all that the Aloha state has to offer, including the option to stay at a range of unique properties from waterfront estates to beach bungalows.

On Dec. 3, the airline´s Hawai´i schedule grows again with daily nonstop flights from SFO to Maui´s Kahului Airport (OGG).

Since its 2007 launch, Virgin America said it has created nearly 3,000 jobs (including 40 new jobs created in Hawai´i). The new Hawai´i markets represent the 22nd and 23rd destinations served by the California-based airline.
